The achievement of the Association for Project Management (APM) ’Introductory Certificate: The APM Project Fundamentals Qualification’ is an excellent way to demonstrate a basic awareness of project management and how projects differ from ’business as usual’ activities. Delivered by fully accredited trainers and industry leading experts with extensive experience of applying the APM approach, the course ensures that delegates gain sufficient understanding to be confident in the practical application of project management as an informed team member.
This course is suitable for those looking to gain an understanding of project management, or those who are not directly involved in project management but who wish to become familiar with project management processes and key terms.
It is also ideal for project managers as a pre-cursor to more advanced certification such as the APMP: The APM Project Management Qualification.

If delegates want to sit the exam, please call us to book and enquire about pricing quoting code FPMEX-3
Key exam information:
Throughout the Introductory Certificate: The APM Project Fundamentals Qualification course, delegates will be provided with lots of examples of examination questions. There will be a number of exercises and ’question-and-answer’ sessions that will help to consolidate the learning, thereby ensuring that delegates are more than adequately prepared for the final examination.
Please note: delegates must bring photographic identification with them on the exam day (e.g. passport, driving license, company secure access card, student card) as it is an examination requirement to present it to the invigilator prior to the exam. Failure to produce a valid form of photographic identification may result in a candidate not being able to sit the exams. For any questions about what form of identification is acceptable, please contact your Account Manager or the QA Examination
This is an intensive two-day course and delegates will be expected to undertake around 10 hours pre-course work in order to be fully prepared. Delegates will be provided with pre-course reading by email prior to attending the course. Success on the course will be enhanced by close attention to the pre-reading materials.
Delegates who have not received pre-course reading material within one week of the start of the course should contact their QA Account Manager or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
